“Empower yourself and realize the importance of contributing to the world by living your talent. Work on what you love. You are responsible for the talent that has been entrusted to you.” Catharina Bruns
Serendipity helped me strike gold today. I was contemplating the idea of not writing a post, when Erica V, one of our Daily Post coordinators, posted a brilliant piece on using inspirational quotes as a way to stimulate our creative juices. Her post was the impetus for this one; plus I loved the quote she shared and have used it above. I always use quotes on my blog, and I enjoy searching both online and offline for the right quotes to fit a post. However, as we all know, there are days when nothing quite registers and we have to keep an open mind/eye to other possibilities.
Part of empowering ourselves involves trusting that we can accomplish the goals we envision, and that guidance comes through many channels. We must move our feet first… How do you empower yourself?
As I read Erica’s post and followed her link to Brain Pickings, one thing led to another, and, including the picture above, I found the following inspiring sites worth visiting:
Work Is Not A Job: An Inspiring concept and design studio owned by Catharina Bruns
TentBlogger: A fellow blogger offers a great post with inspirational quotes
Holstee.com: An Innovative store that encourages us to consider a lifestyle design with a conscience.
When we take action to enrich our lives and minds, we are empowering ourselves… More below. 😉
“I keep the telephone of my mind open to peace, harmony, health, love, and abundance. Then, whenever doubt, anxiety, or fear try to call me, they will keep getting a busy signal-and soon they’ll forget my number.” Edith Armstrong
Do you know you have control over your reality? What The Bleep… explores the subject in great depth. When we allow negative thoughts and ideas to permeate our space, we create pockets of doubt that can grow and become debilitating. It takes commitment and a conscious effort to stay attuned to the positive, and to believe that we are capable of making lasting changes in our lives. Speaking up, sharing knowledge, and keeping the company of good thoughts are empowering. The words on the poster above exhort us to stand up for what we believe. That too is empowering…
What are your thoughts? How do you empower yourself? Do you know you have control over your reality? Are there some doubts that keep surfacing because, maybe, you don’t trust yourself? What do you do to gain clarity? Do share! Thank you. 😉
This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: Where do you find inspirational words? Better yet, what’s your favorite quote that you’ve written yourself?
